Using Headers and Footers

A header is text that appears at the top of each page; a footer is text that appears at the bottom of each page. Typically, headers and footers appear at the top or bottom of every page, perhaps with modifications (such as page numbers that change with every page). Word gives you extensive control over headers and footers. For example, you can

  • Enter any text (or insert other elements, such as images).

  • Create different headers for odd and even pages, or for the first page.

  • Automatically number header or footer pages.

  • Automatically add dates or times to headers and footers.

  • Create different headers for different sections of your document; or reconnect headers in different sections so they are all consistent.
